One of my favorite mystery book series is the Maisie Dobbs series by Jacqueline Winspear. The story follows our heroine, Maisie who is working as an investigator between the wars. The story often winds back to the past to discover how she came to this point in life as well. They are quiet, thoughtful stories rather than violent Ripper tales but the setting and characters are so well-rounded that I have read every book in the series. The eleventh book in the series, A Dangerous Place, has just been released and I’m going to order a copy to add to my Maisie library. Its one of the few series that I own all in hardback.
I hope you enjoy the series too.
